Hey, my name is Tarik, I am 23, living in Brussels (Belgium), I study accounting, I like photography, food and pull-ups.

I started (not seriously) photography 4 years ago. I discovered (few months ago) Eric Kim by searching “best street photographer” on google. I strated reading his stuff, then went out to shoot in the streets. There’s so much I could say  but I will keep it short and let you see my favourite image.

Tell me what you would have done differently, what you like and don’t like about the picture plz. 

Ps: I am really glad to have this platform to share real advice and not just get comments like :”nice pic, check  out mine” from these instagram suckers.

I like that the overall feel of this picture is sleepy.  It might have been nice to wait for the bus to pass.  I’m not sure how much of that is intentional with it near his face (?).  It also has a bit of a strange feeling to it though, like he’s not really relaxed at all, but board-stiff.  Nice tone/exposure with respect to the skin.

the sun was really shining that day and it was right in front of his face, that’s why he don’t look that much relaxed. But I agree with you with that strange feeling. 
Thx for your feedback !

Great shot!! I like the fact that the guy almost jumps out of the picture! 
You attention immediately goes to to him. I also like the leading line that leads to his face. 
I agree with MaxMerkle about the bus/tram in the back. But overal a great picture!

Tarik – this photograph is full of wonderful lines – horizontal, vertical, and diagonal.  I wish that more of them would lead the viewer’s eye to the subject though.  Instead, they generally skirt around the subject, which keeps me from focusing on him.  Nevertheless, he’s an interesting person: is he sleeping, or is he awake, just blocking out his surroundings?  Hard to tell.  I love the way the light plays on his weathered face.  This photo is exposed perfectly.  I also love the deep depth of field, which accentuates his solitude with all the empty space behind him.  I do wish the tram wasn’t cutting through his head; it’s a bit distracting.  Still, all in all, a very good photo.  Keep up the good work.

Tarik, I really like the exposure  and I agree, your eye goes right to him, I agree with Max and Joel, the bus detracts a bit.

Ya gotta watch out for the backgrounds. You have a pole growing out of this guy’s head. The old buzz phrase is figure ground. In addition to composing left to right you should also compose front to back….look at Alex Webb’s photography. The new buzz phrase for this is “layering.”
